Robin Williams’ kids speak out

Robin Williams’ kids have shared their grief over his passing.

The beloved Mrs. Doubtfire actor was found dead at the age of 63 in his Turino, California home on Monday and authorities confirmed preliminary reports suggest he committed suicide.

He left behind three children, including 31-year-old son Zachary, 25-year-old daughter Zelda Rae and 22-year-old son Cody.

His progeny spoke out for the first time on Tuesday about how they’re suffering now their father has passed in statements released to Just Jared

“Yesterday, I lost my father and a best friend and the world got a little grayer. Seek to bring joy to the world as he sought,” Zachary wrote.

Zelda Rae’s tribute also called attention to how her father’s death impacts all members of society.

She believes his joy can never truly be replaced.

“While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions,” she shared.

“Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colourful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.”

Robin’s youngest son Cody feels his presence, despite the fact his father is no longer with is in the flesh.

“I will miss him and take him with me everywhere I go for the rest of my life, and will look forward, forever, to the moment when I get to see him again,” he said.
